Strong Legal Guidance Can Help Ease The Divorce Process
Divorce is never easy. If you are involved in the process, the court takes steps to make it as business-like as possible. The court considers you either the “petitioner” or “respondent,” and there will be agreements, negotiations and papers to sign.
Anyone who has ended a relationship knows none of that matters. Former couples are former partners and when partnerships end things can get combative and emotional. If you are going through a divorce in Indiana you want the compassionate, experienced divorce and family law attorneys at Rabiola Law supporting you.
We will work with you to keep the process as controlled as possible while defending your rights.
Indiana is a no-fault state. Neither party must prove their former spouse did anything wrong. The marriage is ending because they cannot get along, and there does not seem to be anyway to repair the relationship.
Understanding The Divorce Process Can Minimize Stress
· Residency. Either you or your former spouse must have lived in the state (or a U.S. military in Indiana) for at least six months. You also are required to have lived in the county where you are filing for at least three months.
· Petition for Dissolution. This must include date of the marriage; date of separation; current residences of each spouse and the length of time they lived there; names, ages and addresses for minor children and incapacitated dependents; grounds for divorce; and support needed.
· Waiting period. You must wait 60 days before the divorce can be finalized after the petition for dissolution is filed. The time to finalize after the 60-day waiting period will depend on the facts of your case.
· Summary dissolution. The dissolution can be granted without a final hearing if a verified pleading document is filed with the court. The document must include a written waiver of the final hearing; a statement that there are no issues being contested or a written agreement that all issues have been settled.
